(PresidentialHill.com)- In a fact-check last week, Newsweek tackled the unsubstantiated claim that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among the many public figures to visit Jeffrey Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.
In a tweet last week, one Twitter user claimed that Trudeau’s name appears on the “Epstein Island list.”
According to Newsweek, a significant number of prominent public figures have been linked to the late Epstein through flight logs and court documents, including some who visited his private island.
Flight logs included the names of former Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, as well as Prince Andrew Duke of York, the late Senator John Glenn, and former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell. Other prominent public figures whose names are found on the flight logs include Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, Itzhak Perlman, Robert F. Kennedy Junior, and billionaire Bill Gates.
According to Newsweek, the is no proof that any of those named in the flight logs were involved in Epstein’s illegal activity.
Court documents released from Epstein accuser Virginia Guiffre’s civil action against Ghislaine Maxwell included the names of additional prominent figures, including attorney Alan Dershowitz and physicist Stephen Hawking.
Last month, the UK Independent reported that Prince Andrew, Naomi Campbell, Steven Hawking, and Kevin Spacey had all visited Epstein’s private island.
According to Newsweek, Justin Trudeau is likely one of the rich and powerful people who has been “misleadingly associated” with Jeffrey Epstein.
The only link Newsweek could find connecting Epstein and Trudeau was a photoshopped graphic shared on social media that showed Trudeau as one of the six passengers former Epstein pilot Larry Visoski said he met.
The original CNN graphic from which the photoshop was made had Senator George Mitchell in the spot Trudeau occupied in the altered image.
The Canadian prime minister’s name does not appear on the flight logs or any publicly available court documents, according to Newsweek. Therefore, the claim that he visited Epstein’s island is “unverified.”
